Iceberg Dress

Regular price £10.00

The Iceberg Dress is a slinky long sleeved dress designed for knit fabrics. Striking and comfortable at the same time – this is an extremely quick sew, especially if you have an overlocker/serger – but don’t be put off if you don’t have one. It’s the perfect base for hacking to your hearts content - check out the links below for some inspiration. 

FIT

The fit is snug at the bust and hips with a bit a ease at the waist. 

 

VARIATIONS

The pattern is drafted as a maxi dress to sit to just above ankle length. It’s easy to chop to mid‑calf, knee or mini as desired. You could also shorten the sleeves to elbow or cap, or omit them entirely. Deepen the neckband, alter the neckline, add frills or ruffles – the possibilities are endless.

LEVEL
Easy for beginners, quick for the more experienced. This is a great introduction to sewing
with stretch fabrics and learning how to sew a neckband.

FABRIC
A stretch fabric, such as wool, cotton or viscose jersey. A heavier weight fabric will be more
flattering and hold the shape of the dress best. Ponte di Roma is an excellent choice.

POUR LES FORMATS A4 / US LETTER : il est indispensable d’imprimer votre patron à 100%, sinon la taille ne sera pas correcte. Vos paramètres d'impression doivent être "pleine échelle" "100%", "taille réelle" ou un paramètre équivalent selon votre logiciel d'impression.

Il y a deux carrés de test sur la première page de chaque patron : un carré de 5 cm et un carré de 2 pouces. N'imprimez d'abord que cette page et vérifiez que votre carré est bien à la bonne taille, avant d'imprimer le reste du patron.

POUR LE FORMAT A0 : suivez les instructions données par votre imprimeur. Des services sont également disponibles en ligne.
